    Just been searching for a relevant place to post this.

    I'm going to be travelling later in the year and I'm looking for something that will let me search for and use a wi-fi hotspot (for free?) so I can browse news and download the odd podcast.

    I've never had a smart-phone/PDA etc so sorry if this is all a bit basic but when you use a wi-fi hotspot how quick would it be to download a 50mb mp3 for example? And the device would have to be able to play back the file.

    * I'm presuming using a wi-fi hotspot on a mobile device is free?
    * I'm specifically talking about Australia, so the device would have to be usable there.
    * I don't think I'll be on a mobile phone contract or anything (PAYG atm and possibly looking to get an Australian SIM with PAYG once I get there)

    I can hold off buying anything until October if there's anything in the pipe-line or if prices are likely to drop.

    Not necessarily. Most public hotspots require a log-in (like the ones used in Starbucks), which have to be paid for.

    even walking down a high street you'll find plenty of unsecure ones, so it isn't usually a problem.

    I've only ever owned Sony handsets, and every single one of them has failed within a few months. Last weekend my k800i completely crashed (white screen of death!) so I've had to send it back. I like the useage of their phones, but they are unbelieveably bad for reliability. ...I'm not getting another Sony phone for a while, they clearly aren't getting better!

    Contract is up next month, and I want a smart phone where I can install apps and use wifi...so I guess same question as tyler!

    Had the same mate fixed two weeks ago. Software upgrade done messed up again about a week ago waitin for it to be fixed for the 2nd time now. Hope it don't mess up when my contract runs out. I hear on the net most phones muck up not just Sony ones, unless someones heard otherwise. My other SE was fine n still is.

    Next phone I get is an awesome Japanese one so hopefully that will be 10 x better plus more reliable. Can anyone recommend any awesome japanese phones? I know it's a long shot as maybe the Japanese based peeps won't look at this thread.

    Tyler im pretty certain the Nokia N95 meets all your requirements, tho if you want an unlocked sim free one your gonna be looking around £400.

    JU! you might wanna look at getting something like a Sharp W51SH, i belive most of the top most popular phones in Japan are Sharp ones. Tho im not sure how much use a phone outside of Japan will be due to the networks in this country. Still the W51SH is a beast of a phone it even has a mini 3" Aquos screen.

    Cheers mate I actually move to Japan Nov 29th, so will be in Japan. I know some of my Japanese friends could use there phones here in the U.K when on hol but it costs a bomb. I have a K800i which works fine in Japan but contract is up soon. Just don't use the Internet else you get a £380 bill like I did when you come bck lol. The calling was fine in Japan with the K800i but u have to turn off the voice mail cus that also cost a bomb n tell Vodafone etc to open up yr roaming with vodafone passport. I want Japanese e-mail texts, plus a normal Japanese number I'll have a look at some Sharp ones.

    Thanks again

    I've been a recent convert to Sony Ericsson after being loyal to Nokia for years. Its only been in the last couple of years that the SE UI has caught up to and surpassed the Nokia one in terms of user friendliness IMO.

    Sony Ericsson s500i

    hi, im not very techy but interested in this anyone know if it is indeed out yet tried searching web.

    carphone warehouse has it down as 'new' but when click buy, does feck all. in your basket absolute zilch. going into town tomorrow to see if it's about. but anyone have one? opinions if so. looks fab!

    whilst on here was worth asking, i noticed that didnt seem to be a designated phone thread unless mistaken

    also wouldn't have no problem (or be stung) making calls to spain -any network to try and be on? the missus is over there and aint spoken to her for a good couple of weeks due to costs.
